From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Billy Gilman (born May 24, 1988) is an American country music singer and songwriter.

Born in Hope Valley, Rhode Island, Gilman first received notice as a performer at age seven, attracting the attention of a local vocal coach, Angela Bacari, who later became his manager. Eventually he met with Ray Benson (of Asleep at the Wheel) who helped him record some demos; two months later he was signed by Sony Music Nashville.

His 2000 debut album, One Voice, had a very widely-played single that crossed over well into top 40 airplay. The album reached multi-platinum status, and earned a Grammy nomination. Generally touted as a child prodigy, Gilman appeared on various talk shows. A Christmas album (which was certified gold) was released later in the year.

He released Dare to Dream on Epic Records in 2001, and in 2003 released Music Through Heartsongs, an album inspired by the poetry of Mattie Stepanek. Later in 2003, he performed at a benefit for The Station nightclub fire. In May 2005, he released Everything and More.
